Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: Jakkyn is average height, about 5 9" and weighs appropriately for his height. He has short hair that hangs at the nape of his neck, a dark blond, almost brown shade. His eyes are a deep hazel almost green or blue, depending on the angle of the light, that sparkle on the rare occasions one can find him actually laughing. He has a little scar above his right eye, but it isn't very noticeable, one would have to look for it to notice it. His nose has a noticeable bump at the bridge from when a senior bronzer punched him for being insubordinate and talking to mere greenriders. He has a slight sprinkling of freckles across his arms, mainly his shoulders from constant outings in the sun.
Personality: He is a typical ladies man; they just seem to flock to him, though he believes hes just an ordinary fellow. He could have any number of girls if he wanted to, but hes holding out for that one special greenrider that's out there, waiting for him.
History: Jakkyn was born to dragonrider parents, but they didn't love him. They didn't want anything to do with him; they didn't want anything to do with each other. Their union was a chance one between a bronzer and a greenrider. His mother was not even out of weyrlinghood when her green rose and the bronze caught her. The only thing they did about Jakkyn, was decide that he had to be gotten rid of; they didn't even want him around in the creche or anything even remotely close to them. They sent him to be fostered at another weyr. After much arguments, he was allowed to stay at Fort Weyr.
Information about J'kyn's pets
Pet Name: Flicka
Pet Type: green flit
Appearance: A dark green flit, she is very tiny for her age and color, even as a green. The opposite of her name sake, Flicka’s neck is the unusually long part, not her tail, though her tail is completely proportional. She has lighter tiger-looking stripes that trail down her legs and up her tail. She has a much lighter, almost yellow shaded spot on her chest, this being one of the two only differences between her and her name sake.
Personality: She is always perky to offset her pet’s often upset temperament. She often tries to cheer up Jakkyn, knowing that she causes a good deal of his heart ache. She loves to swim and just fly for the heck of it, often noticeable diving down at the fish in the lake, just to frighten them. She loves to curl up with Jakkyn as he sleeps, right up next to his neck, so that he knows she’s there and will never leave him.
Information about J'kyn's dragon
Dragon Name: Tryth
Wing (Weyrling Group): Thunder Flame
Appearance: Egg - Red Skies at Morning Egg: Vibrance overflows between cloudy white streaks that are meandering across brilliant red. The Red Skies at
Personality: Tryth's main personality trait will be defined by the fact that she always wants something she can't necessarily have. She'll devise scheme's and plots to get what she wants, and she'll sometimes get it, but the moment she does, another new obsession flares into life. She'll obsess over other dragons with a completeness that makes you feel sure that if they should only glance her way, should rise to catch her, her life would be complete.
Weyr of Origin: Arolos
Abilites and weaknesses: Tryth is fast and agile, and smart for a green. She will be the master of the flashy maneuver when she is older, but it is really her ambition and obsession to pursue things that makes her stand out. Tell her she cannot fly yet, and she'll immediately start working on a sneaky way to make it happen. Tell her she can't hunt yet, and she'll try and find a way to prove you wrong - and obviously she expects her lifemate to be her willing accomplice. They will have their work cut out for them!
